The growth of applications is increasing the consumption of caprolactam.

The caprolactam market size is expected to grow from USD 13.1 billion in 2018 to USD 15.6 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 3.59% during the forecast period. The caprolactam market is driven by the need for lightweight vehicles, the growth of films and coatings applications, and the growth of emerging economies. However, moisture absorption resulting in degradation of properties is the major restraining factor for the market.

Increasing consumption of caprolactam in nylon 6 fibers and engineering plastics is expected to fuel the demand for caprolactam.
The nylon 6 fibers segment is the largest and fastest-growing application of caprolactam.Caprolactam is initially processed to produce polyamide 6 fiber and is then further melted and spun to produce staple, tow, monofilament, and multi-filament form.

The fiber has outstanding durability and excellent physical properties.Textile is an area of important end-use for polyamide.

The most commonly used polyamide textiles are produced from polyamide 6, polyamide 66, and other co-polyamides. The excellent properties of caprolactam enable the end-product to exhibit pleasant tactical qualities, lighter weight, and higher strength.

APAC is expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period.
APAC has emerged as the leading consumer and producer of caprolactam due to the growing manufacturing sector in all major economies of the region.In addition, the presence of many big, as well as, small caprolactam producers, is driving the market in the region.

The demand for caprolactam in APAC is majorly driven by consumption in China. Other APAC countries such as Taiwan and India are also witnessing significant investments in polyamide production to cater to the automotive and electrical & electronics industries.
